Alaska's global warming problem
This is an article I found (via Cursor) about an Alaskan village's shoreline being swallowed, little by little, by the sea each year due to increased temperatures. Solutions by the Army Corp of Engineers don't work, and the senior senator from Alaska says that there is hope; you see, we're approaching the end of the warming "phase" that has taken place for the past 700 years, and so the "cooling phase" should start very soon, and the village of Shishmaref will be saved. It's all so hopeless.
